Maybe exhaust was not such a good idear...

Mechanically wise the new exhaust is great! I love the way it sounds, and performs. But it seems now that I have it on, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE wants to race, or drive like an arse around me. It must have happened to me 5 different times today. On the way to a haunted house thing tonight I was getting on the highway ramp, and this A-hole behind me is literally within an inch or two from my bumper. As soon as I we get onto the highway, I maintain the speed limit, and he flies around me all cool guy and such lol In a 1998 monte carlo or whatever the hell it was, some old POS. Of course I was no where near willing to oblige, I have my wife, cousin, and cousins girlfriend with me. Happened again in the parking lot of the haunted house place. As I was parked, about to leave, some hillbillies in their POS old ford ranger pull up next to my car, and do a huge burnout, hollering nonsense, and leave lol WTF. And then the usual on the ride home. People riding my a$$, when im not even poking like an old lady. The best is when I was in my apartment complex, and someone, again is literally on my bumper throughout the whole complex, and I made a complete stop at a stop sign. Theyre honking, and revving their engine like a jacka$$. Is it this exhaust? lol Have I been marked as a street racer all of a sudden now that I own a nice Si with performance mods? Does anyone else experience this? It pisses me off.

I was thinking maybe bad luck but then you said an si. i know theyre nice but everyone seems to always want to race one to prove some point. best you can do is wait to be rear ended and collect the money on it.

and next time someone does that crap at a stop sign maybe you should get out and ask them what their problem is... then again maybe not the best idea.

You should do what I did when I had turbo-back on my SRT4 and on my Audi A4. Just don't give a . Worked for me. I always looked at the other driver to see what a tool is trying to race me. I always let them take off and let other drivers to think " who the hell is that person driving like an idiot?"

lol, that's epic, I may have to get one made up like that. People ride my ass all the time. I at least do the speed limit, i just don't gun it to see how fast i can get there. try to keep the shifting points between 2500-3k but i guess that's not good enough. Reminds me of this d-bag in a green zx5...idk how many f-ing times that prick has almost hit me driving like a jackass

I understand your frustration. I always attract the folks in 80s cars.......like Chevy Berettas and trucks........really. I figure if you go to your local highway patrol office and get a couple of highway patrol stickers, they might stop.........who knows, otherwise, try your best to ignore them. The best thing you can do for your gf is to tint the windows.
Usually, if someone runs up on me acting a fool, I turn up the radio and ignore them.

BTW, you got any pics of your girlfriend ......yo
